    Ron DeSantis Interrupted During Speech As Protesters Rush Stage

    Published on

    Many view Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, as a contender for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. However, he has some formidable opponents.

    Friday evening in Manchester, New Hampshire, as the governor was delivering a speech, protesters chanting “Jews against DeSantis” rushed the stage.

    As security moved in and removed the protestors from the stage, DeSantis remained stationary and made light of the situation.

    “If you looked at governor races, president races, 2010, 12, 14, 16, 18,” the governor said at the Amos Tuck fundraiser dinner before being interrupted.

    “You gotta have a little spice in the speech right?” he said as the two women protesters were taken away by security.

    “Why would you want to pay for the ticket to get in just to do that? I don’t know, but different strokes for different folks,” he said.

    During his speech, the governor extolled his credentials, although he has not yet declared his candidacy for the presidency.

    “We’re leading the nation on a whole host of issues. We’re number one in the country.. for net-in migration… we’re number one in new business formations, one number in tourism. We’re number one in economic freedom… we’re number one in education freedom. We’re number one in parental involvement in education,” he said. “We lead not merely with words but with deeds.”

    In his speech, he never mentioned former President Donald Trump, but he appeared to take a jab at him.

    “There is no substitute for losing. Republicans need to the shake the culture of losing that has developed throughout our party in recent years. The time for excuses is over. We must get it done once and for all,” he said.

    The former president’s poll numbers have skyrocketed since Manhattan District Attorney Alphonso Bragg indicted him, leaving the Florida governor in a significant polling deficit.

    In a newly released Rasmussen Reports survey, Trump now leads Biden 47% to 40% with the support of women and independents, according to the Washington Examiner.

    The survey conducted on Wednesday was the first test of the 2024 general election since the publication of the 45th president’s hush money indictment in Manhattan last week. The survey was conducted prior to Trump’s Tuesday hearing, during which he pled not guilty to 34 charges, according to the outlet.

    In a Wednesday tweet displaying the results, the pollster included the figures for February and wrote, “Reversal of Fortune — Massive Strategic Backfire.”

    “The survey weighted Democrats heavier than Republicans and independents, 36%, 33%, 31%,” the Examiner noted.

    In addition, Biden trails Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, who has a significantly larger margin than Biden, 46% to 38%.

    Both DeSantis and Trump are performing well among women and unaffiliated voters, which are deemed crucial to victory in 2024. Trump leads Biden among women by a margin of 47% to 39%. In contrast, DeSantis leads among women by a margin of 43% to 39%.

    “Among independent voters, Trump leads Biden 44% to 36%, and DeSantis leads Biden 44% to 32%,” continued the outlet. If the election were conducted this week, both Trump and DeSantis would receive 26 percent of the black vote, according to the pollster.

    In a speech last night, following his indictment, Trump presented his most recent argument for regaining the presidency by comparing multiple prosecutions to “political persecution” in a banana republic. He also criticized Biden’s economic, immigration, and foreign policy management.

    “Our country is going to hell,” he said.

    A survey conducted in February and released just prior to Biden’s State of the Union address revealed that members of his own party are unhappy with him.

    According to an AP-NORC poll, only 37 percent of Democrats support Biden for a second term. Prior to the November midterm elections, 52 percent of respondents in the same poll desired Biden to run again in 2024.

    “While Biden has trumpeted his legislative victories and ability to govern, the poll suggests relatively few U.S. adults give him high marks on either. Follow-up interviews with poll respondents suggest that many believe the 80-year-old’s age is a liability, with people focused on his coughing, his gait, his gaffes, and the possibility that the world’s most stressful job would be better suited for someone younger,” the Associated Press reported.

    “I, honestly, think that he would be too old,” said Sarah Overman, a Democrat in Raleigh, North Carolina. “We could use someone younger in the office.” CONTINUE READING…
